How do I set up emails on an android device?

The below screen shots have been taken from a Samsung Galaxy S4, other android devices should have similar styled screens. 

There are two ways to add the account into the standard email app called email.

The first is the more automated way. To do it enter your full email address and password. Click next and it will start configuring the account.

 

 

You may be greeted with the below screen, just press continue and the account will add itself. 

 

The next screen will allow you to set up some settings of the account. Tab the box to change the schedules. click next once you are done.

 

These two fields below should already be filled out but you can rename them to something more meaningful if you prefer. Once you click done you will now have your email account setup.

The other method is a more manual process but you get more settings to pick in the setup phase. To do it enter your full email address and password. Click next and it will start configuring the account.

 

 

Select Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.

 

The top two fields Email address and Domain\username need to be your Full email address. In the exchange server sections make it outlook.office365.com (as below). There will be a next button at the bottom select it, you may need to scroll a little bit.

 

Select Ok once you have read through the information and agree to allow it to have that access.

This screen is for selecting settings of how you want your account handled. The default value is Automatic (push). When you select this option, email messages will be sent to your phone as they arrive. There will be a next button at the bottom select it, you may need to scroll a little bit.

    Could really do with an updated guide for the more recent versions of Android.
